Off with his head!


I know I said I'd be working on the Thundertusk, but I just wanted to get Bragg the Gutsman wrapped up and out of the way. This mini lived up to the name Finecast, and didn't cause me the same problems that the Firebelly did (if you want to see my rant you can look back a few posts). Painting was fairly simple on this guy, loads of metal and black clothing. I used Vallejo's Sombre Grey as the additional color for highlighting the black mask, belt, and boots, and I used Vallejo's Charred Brown (and later Pale Sand) as the additional colors for highlighting the black pants. These areas all received a Badab Black wash to knock back any extreme highlights.




I also didn't want to just leave you with Bragg, so here are some shots of my two Hunters and my two Sabretusks, all painted roughly six years ago.






Cheers
Dave

  2. Looks good mate, wasn't sure about the Bragg model at first (not your paint job, just the model in general) but the more I see it the more I'm tempted to get one too.

    The hunters still stand up well even with 6 years between them.

  4. Hi guys

    Thanks for all your comments.

    @Mike - Nope, just some new snow on the bases
    @Dante - he is a nice fig, but certainly overcosted as a character. Good to know my painting hasn't improved in six years ; )
    @Maxime - really happy with the way his weapon turned out.

    Cheers
    Dave

  5. I needs to pick up some of that Sombre Grey and Charred Brown, me thinks.

    Nice to see those old Hunters again!
